Belanga - Empire Shopping Gallery (Subang Jaya)

Belanga? How familiar!! Day in day out noisily I roll the belanga/pots in my kitchen, and this Belanga in Empire Shopping Gallery I have been told rolls our wonderful selection of Kelantanese cuisine. I didn't stumble upon Belanga only on this day, in fact, I have passed by a number of times while shopping in this quite a popular mall. On this day, I made it a point to step foot into Belanga for an early lunch, just when they were just getting ready after opening the front door. The staff didn't look happy when I walked in, they didn't greet me either, nope, not even a faint smile. I actually felt uncomfortable, yet I sat at the far end corner elegant corner near the glass window. Service came crawling in tortoise speed, I ordered Mee Bandung Prawns and "Java Fantacy”, and when I started clicking pictures, sigh!, I am not sure why I was stared at.   

While I thought I may have to wait and wait, really wait to be served again, surprisingly Mee Bandung and Java Fantacy came within 10 minutes. Yellow noodles, prawns and vegetables, a calamansi lime, some sliced red chillies and coriander leaves in the thick gravy, Mee Bandung lazily plated. Lazy and messy, believe me. Look at the picture please. Quite disappointing as well, gravy was cold which definitely turned me off. Ranked against a border pass, I then strawed the Java Fantacy - loudly spun in the blender until I could here from where I was seated, celery, tomato, carrot and ginger pulsed, poured into the glass, topped with ice and  a big shaped-up like a stirrer carrot. Well, carrots must be growing behind their counter I thought, what a waste. Regardless, this fruity drink did quench my thirst, hopefully will work super well for detoxing.  

Now, the question you are asking me, will I return to Belanga? After paying RM27.00, additionally service with long face and food didn't really wow me, I am leaving Belanga as a big question mark.

Don't forget to trend alongside "dine with nava-k"/nava_krishnan on every other social media pleasseee!!

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
